Delaware has always been one of those states that neither side could really move. Their carry are may-but-we-kind-of-sort-of-mostly-issue, but other than that Delaware’s gun laws aren’t that different from most other states. Neither side has tried very hard to change anything until now:
Gov. Jack Markell announced a package of bills Wednesday aimed at strengthening Delaware’s gun laws.
He wants to “close the gun show loophole,” make it illegal to possess a firearm under the influence, improve reporting to NICS, and allow seized firearms to be destroyed. The first one is non-negotiable, but I’d trade making it illegal to carry under the influence to make Delaware a shall-issue state. No word on what the legal BAC limit would be, but if it’s the same as an automobile, I have no objection.
